Daines: “The American People Know a Stunt When They See it”

U.S. Senator Steve Daines today delivered remarks at the weekly Republican Senate Leadership press conference calling out Joe Biden and Senate Democrats for using political stunts to try to hide the fact that they have failed the American people in every way, from inflation to the border to national security.

Watch Daines’ remarks HERE.

“Some of you might remember Evel Knievel. Evel Knievel was a daredevil. He was a stunt artist. He was from Butte, Montana. And he attempted some pretty crazy stuff. Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer and the Dem allies are giving old Evel Knievel a run for his money when it comes to pushing the envelope on crazy. Let me give you just a few of the recent latest and greatest hits.

“The Trump trial. Let’s be clear, President Trump would have gotten a fairer trial in Honduras, The Dems weaponized the justice system. They held a trial worthy of a banana republic with a judge who donated to Joe Biden’s campaign. It was a total and complete sham.

“And then, just before we left for the Memorial Day recess, Chuck Schumer put a border bill on the floor. It was all for show because the Senate Democrats’ border crisis has now become a significant political crisis. And Biden knows it too. Which is why, three years after he rolled back all of President Trump’s policies that helped secure the border, he finally decided to do something today.

“But it’s a little too late. The American people see through it, they know better. They know the border is Joe Biden and the Senate Democrats’ fault. They know record inflation is President Biden and Senate Democrat’ fault, and they know President Biden and Senate Democrats’ foreign policy is a disaster, which has incited chaos around the world.

“They know a stunt when they see it, which is why they are going to hold President Biden and Senate Democrats accountable five months from today for all their failures.”
